the best branded content is not about a brand, it's about a cause.

it's about making a meaningful contribution to a bigger conversation, inspiring others to share the story while adding their own perspectives.

it's about community, and that might entail building a new community or rediscovering one that's been overlooked.

this short documentary from intel embodies all of these things. it's a story about a technologist helping a long-suffering community help themselves, and in so doing, it reminds us of what we can be in those precious moments when we act generously and selflessly.

Ugh, patent trolls...
 
Negative correlation between VC funding and patent troll litigation is found by researchers at MIT's Sloan School of Business.

Heavy patent litigation scared off about $22 billion in VC funding over 5 years.
